Happy Friday friends, boy, this week went quick, we were super busy preparing for scout events and just general day-to-day stuff. Today I had to clean my house a bit because it looked like I was in need of a visit from Hoarders or Super Nanny, I’m not sure which but that is NOT how I want to make my TV debut hahaha! The laundry is sorted and dispatched to the children and the house is out of the “in need of an intervention” stage and now I can sit back with a glass of wine and relax. Ahhhhhhh. How ’bout we make a card?
I actually made this yesterday (when I should have been cleaning) when I needed a break from my to-do list. I used the new Birds in Trees and Murder of Crows stamps from Lost Coast Designs. I really wanted to make the background stamp stand out and use all 4 crows from the stamp set so I thought a center step card would allow that and add interesting dimension…almost a shadow-box look, to this card. What’s more it’s easy and uses no more cardstock then a normal card. Want to see how it is done? Watch the video:
I hope you give this card a try and maybe branch out to fancier step designs. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
EDIT: I just did a google search to see more step card templates and it yielded a treasure trove of wonderful free templates and beautiful card examples! You can find the search results here.
